get to know the databases!

As you’re trying on 360Search for size, you’ll probably find database names coming up in the “Results by Source” list that you’ve never used before. And maybe, just maybe, you’re finding that a lot of potentially useful sources seem to be coming from these databases that, until now, have been unknown to you. Yes, they’ve been here all along. (Honest, we haven’t been hiding them.)

Another way to get to know some of the databases we have is to take a gander at our “Database of the Day” display on the reference desk. For each database in this daily-changing display, you’ll see what kinds of things are in it (articles, books, essays, etc.) and what sorts of subjects it covers.

Between 360Search and this display, who knows, you just might end up finding a new BFF database!
